    Try Google.

    And don't get sucked into Oprah-ish fads.

        fad, yes, they're not the life saving single most potent potion of longevity as people might lead you t o believe, but if you can afford to get them every now and again, they ARE quite good sources of anti oxidants and taste pretty damn good.

        If you do dairy, try them with whole yogurt and some tree nuts, almonds or pecans work best imo.

          hello james, not sure i can afford them in a regular way, this is just a "one shot" parcel i received
          but the bag should last for months !! i put some in a small box, will carry it with me during the week

          thanks for the idea, i'll try in a smoothie too !!

            Try some of these recipes: Tea Guardian: Tea Preparation: 3 Recipes for the Season

            "Goji" is just another name for wolfberry. However, if you see the two side-by-side, typically the "Goji" one will be more expensive due to brand recognition. They are the same plant.

                We get these ("wolfberries") pretty cheap from a local asian supermarket. The best recipe with them is baked salmon -

                take a piece of frozen wild Alaskan salmon, and a sheet of foil or baking paper. Oil the paper (I use good olive oil), spread a handful of berries and oil the frozen fish and put it flesh-side-down on the berries. Wrap up and bake 30 mins in a hot oven. When you unwrap it put it on the plate skin side down so the berries are on top. Delicious!

                            Well, I'm weird, but I just drop them in my tea. They rehydrate in my tea, add a nice flavor, and when I'm done drinking my tea I eat the berries.

                            They also go well in homemade trail mix.
